The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Hope. For those readers who look to fiction to explore the scope of human behavior, consider reading Heather Morris’ finely written novel titled, The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Protagonist Lale Sokolov arrives at the concentration camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942. Because of his language skills, he is selected to work as a tattooist to mark numbers on prisoners. Morris sets up the contrast between the evil behavior of the Nazis and Lale’s ways of helping others and fostering hope in himself and others. This is a love story between Lale and Gita, a woman he meets in the camp. Based on a true story, Morris draws readers into horror and hope in ways that affirm our ability to express love and survive against all odds.
